Bliar and Charles Clarke will be repeating the mantra over and over soon enough
This is the work of MI operatives, beyond a shadow of a doubt. PROBLEM REACTION SOLUTION

This does, however, follow the pattern of the Madrid bombing where there wasn't any real outcome (no war was declared and no unified "we've got to do the EU because it's the ONLY way to stop terrorism" message being pumped out continually since then.)

Seems so odd how this event gets so much pub, while in two weeks we'll here of a bomb going off in Bahgdad that kills 50 and won't get so much as a blip of pub.

No, I don't think that dh is too far off target with his comments. Think about it. The whole EU constitution endorsement seems to be falling apart at the seems. Maybe, just maybe, if there were to be a few terrorist attacks in some choice locations it would help to patch things up again. Go back and look at the result of what happened after the Madrid bombings and you'll see what I mean.
No one is saying that these attacks aren't terrible and barbaric. The question is just being raised as to who is behind them. Someone has a reason for carrying them out. Who exactly will benefit the most from these attacks?
